Q:What style of cartoon do you draw? Will my guests be insulted?

A: I describe my cartoons as what you would look like if you starred in your own Cartoon series. Previous guests have described my style as “sooo cute” “Oh , I look so young” .

N.B- No big noses or ears in my drawings . Although I can’t say the same about hair and eyelashes. I do enjoy luscious locks.

Q:Why do you draw on a tablet and not pen and paper?

A: I find drawing on an iPad pro gives me more flexibility than when I used paper and pencil.

  • It allows me to draw couples and groups easily,

  • I can cut and paste guests into another drawings ,no need to draw twice.

  • I can offer digital copies of the drawing. No need to carry about large bits of paper that could get damaged.

Q:Do you draw in black and white or colour?

A: Drawing in black and white is quicker than colour. I recommend black and white cartoons at events such as weddings or corporate functions and colour when you would like more time with the guest such as trade show booths.

Q:How much of the guest do you draw, Full body or head and shoulder?

A: I draw the head and shoulder of your guest . Enough to create a lovely keepsake and have fun laughing at the cartoon whilst leaving enough time to draw lots more guests.

Q:How many cartoons can you draw in an hour?

A: Whilst I can’t guarantee how many cartoons I can draw in an hour the average seems to be between 10 and 12. I have found any more than that begins to feel like a production line and less personal.

Q: Are on-the-spot caricatures suitable for large weddings?

A: Absolutely! Because:

  • not all of your guests will want a cartoon drawn .

  • some enjoy watching the cartoons being created on a monitor attached to my easel ,

  • some enjoy asking about the technology I use.

  • others have fun with the folks in the hot seat.

All of which contribute to the relaxed and light-hearted atmosphere.

Q: What if my guests are shy and don’t want to sit still or be stared at?

A: Nobody likes a strange person staring at them for any length of time . This is why I take a reference photo as well as occasionally looking at the person I’m drawing. This means your guests can relax chat and drink prosecco without feeling watched.

Q: I have children at my event will you be able to draw them as well?

A: Of Course. I love drawing little ones with parents or family members .

N.B as I take a photo as part of the reference for their cartoon an adult should be present during the process.

Q: Can couples and groups be drawn together?

A: Whilst every caricaturist is different, I prefer drawing couples and groups as opposed to one guest at a time. This is because:

  • Having groups of guests joking and laughing around my easel attracts more onlookers and creates a brilliant buzz in the room.

  •  I have found I draw more people when they come with friends as I can spend less time waiting for folks to get comfy and more time drawing .

  •  In my experience I have found your guests are more likely to come up to have a caricature drawn if they can approach me with a friend or family member for moral support.

Q: Will you have time to draw the Newlyweds?

A: It is very unlikely the couple will have time to sit for a cartoon so I will take a photo of the guest of honour or couple then draw their cartoon in the same style as the guests but in colour and email it to them within a week along with a link to their webpage where they can view all the cartoons drawn on the day.
